Must have sewing tools
Without a doubt, sewing has once again become much more popular over the last few years and many people are making money from home with this amazing skill. However, most sewing projects need much more than just a sewing machine and fabric. For this reason, it is a good ideas to stock your sewing box with these tools and essentials.
First on our list of must have sewing tools from Amazon, is some good fabric scissors. On the whole, no sewing is complete without an exceedingly sharp pair of scissors that will glide though your fabric with ease. As well as this, it is very important that you don’t use paper scissors to cut fabric as it will tear. On the other hand, it is also important to NEVER cut paper or card with your fabric scissors. Additionally, good scissors start from around £10 but can be found as high as £65+. However, we recommend these Handi stitch tailor/dressmaking scissors that can be purchased at £14.99.
Next on our list of must have sewing tools from Amazon, we come to the seam ripper. Once again, this is a must have tool for any sewing box and can be bought in a variety of sizes. Overall, we would definitely recommend that you have at least 1 small and a 1 large for different project types. In addition to this, seam rippers start at around £3-£5, however, these can also be found as high as £35. In our opinion, you most certainly don’t need to spend that much.
Furthermore, we recommend this 2 piece set with non slip handle, this costs around £5.99
As well as a good pair of fabric scissors, it is also a good idea to purchase a good, sharp rotary cutter. Without a doubt, these cutters will save you so much time, especially when cutting straight lines and are also perfect when quilting. As well as this, rotary cutters have a razor sharp blade that can cut through several layers of fabric at once, allowing you to spend more time on the fun aspects of sewing.
On the whole, you can buy these from around £6.99 to £60. However, this DealKit rotary cutter is only £12.99 and also comes with 3 extra blade. You can also purchase these blades individually.
As mentioned above with the fabric clips, it is also a good idea to have a stock of sharp fabric pins for times when clips may be too large. Not only do you want these pins to be sharp so that they don’t rip your fabric. But it is also a good idea to purchase some pins that are easy to grip. As well as this, if you have small children or pets in the house, it is also a good idea to buy pins that are vibrant and easy to spot. For this reason, we love these button topped fabric pins that cost around £6.99 and come as a pack of 300. However, you can also purchase simple fabric pins for around £3.
Another must have sewing essential from Amazon is a sliding gauge tool. As well as being good for marking and measuring button holes, marking seam allowance and hem gauge. You can also use this tool for many other craft projects and it is overall a very handy tool to have. Usually, you can purchase these for between £6 and £30. Although this Yeqin sliding gauge tool can be bought from £7.
Next up on our list of must have sewing tools from Amazon, we look at this amazing magnetic pin cushion wrist band. Without a doubt, it is very easy to lose pins when sewing. For this reason, this is a must have for all sewing lovers. As well as this, due to the strong magnet, this can hold up to 100 pins at a time and the strap is adjustable for all size wrists. Once again, this product varies greatly in price, between £7 and £40. However, this EXTTC wrist band is usually around £7.99.
Coming towards the end of our list on must have sewing tools, we have retractable tape measure. On the whole, a good tape measure is essential when sewing and retractable tape measures are fantastic as they prevent any tangling or stretching. In addition to this, they are also a great idea as they store easier in your sewing box. As with many of these products, retractable tape measures can also be purchased in many different colours, sizes and shapes to fit your style. However, we always like something a bit more unique, which is why we love these adorable soft, plush cartoon tape measures. Overall, retractable tape measures can be found from around £3 and can go as high as £80. However, this 4 pack is only around £9
